I spotted someone wearing a beautiful scarf and had to ask where they got it. "Deniz Bevan? Is that you?" She spat out her coffee, suspiciously dumping the remainder on the floor, and invited me to her home to "refill" with a new brew. I shook my head in confusion, but was ready to get out of the chill.
*this is a creative writing exercise. A designated driver was on hand...
1. You still have a Christmas present out. Why?
Still a few friends I haven't had a chance to see yet, & so many kiddies to give gifts for.
One present cures it all? Are you a freakin' magician? Why didn't you tell me!
Uh-oh, I seem to be unraveling at the seams - I ended up getting 4 more gifts...so let's pretend that lone gift was for me!
As long as I get the 4, I'm good with that!
2. I love a good snowball fight. You in?
Maybe...as long as I can build a fort first!
What the heck? You say that as one appears behind you?! MA-GIC!!!
3. Did you get my package?
That was you that sent the automatic edits-completer/latte-dispenser? How did you know exactly what I needed for 2014?!
It's magic. Nuff-said. Plus black erasers & expired milk were on clearance.
Ooh, now I need one of those chalkboard painted walls...I've always wanted one of those.
4. Who is cuter: a skinny Christian Bale or a skinny Matthew McConaughey?
McConaughey's kinda old, no? But I'll go with him 'cos isn't Bale kinda violent? Though I just saw him in American Hustle & not only did I not recognize him, but thought he was great in that role.
Well, he can hustle me anytime...well, I mean, for himself of course. Wait. Does he still pay me?
Yes! Unflavored, unsalted, unbuttered. Am I the only person that likes it that way?
*writes apology letter to popcorn* Yes, yes you are. You just ruined...the magic.
I'll try it with butter next time, I promise! Er, maybe.
6. Is it piñata time yet?
It's five o' clock somewhere! Wait, there are drinks in this piñata, no?
Dang girl, what's in those snowballs?? You are all kinds of mixed up drunk. Magic barf bag appear!
7. If you could own an island, what would you name it?
You mean besides holy-shamoley-I-can't-believe-I-own-an-island? I'd probably end up naming it after a place in a Tolkien story. Doriath, maybe - inaccessible for the outside world!
*blink* Oh snap! Those magic snowballs are amazing! Oh...my bad. Guess your island was just accessed. New name: Access-oriath.
Oh no! Everyone run for the fort! Yes, there will be drinks there!
*runs like a cheetah*
8. Why is your nose bleeding?
Are you trying to steal my island or is the air really dry in here? (it's -30* Celsius outside right now)
*munches on Deniz's snowballs* What was the question?
Mmm, bourbon flavored snowball...Let's kiss and make up!
I'm gonna need more snowballs to even consider that!
9. Would you like to be beaten in a game of chess?
I wouldn't like to, but I probably would be, sadly. This reminds me of one of my favorite lines from the first Harry Potter book; Ron's best line (which they didn't include in the movie, showing just how much moviemakers miss the points of books): "That's chess! You have to make sacrifices!"
Well like I said, you get beat up, so wear a facemask because it's gonna get ugly. Ron was right!
10. Do you like to jump around, jump around, jump up - jump up and get down?
Only in a large group of people. Say if I got to have a piñata party for blogging friends on my island. First, I'll need a yacht...
Just summon those cold blue balls...the magic snowball ones! Dirty minded girl you are...
Wait till I have another drink!
Agh! You're such a lush!!
I haven't had such a fun interview in ages! Thanks so much for hosting me, Tammy (or did I host you at my island?*ducks*)! It's -30* Celsius with the wind out there, and snow-white everywhere, but now I'm thinking of snowball fights and warm drinks. All is good. Cheers! *hands around a glass to everyone*
I just have one thing to say... I'm calling you a cab. :D
Okay, & giving you you're much deserved BADGE!! Congrats!
